ESSER II

Elementary and Secondary Schools Emergency Relief II Fund

The ESSER II grant program was authorized in the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA), signed into law in December 2020. The intent and purpose of the CRRSA Act of 2021, ESSER II funding is to prevent, prepare for, or respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, including its impact on the social, emotional, mental health, and academic needs of students.

On August 10, 2021, Ferris ISD applied for and received a total ESSER II allocation of $1,699,635. These funds are supplemental and will be used to prevent, prepare for, or respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, including its impact on the social, emotional, mental health, and academic needs of students.

As part of the application process, Ferris ISD solicited stakeholder input through a survey/request for public comment and opportunity for discussion before the Ferris ISD Board of Trustees. Any feedback or input received from local stakeholders was considered in the development of the District's ESSER II plan for these funds.
